Background Because elbows are important joints for the function of upper limbs, the daily activity of the patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may be impaired by synovitis of elbows. Although elbows are included into the 28 essential joints for evaluation of the disease activity of RA, ultrasonography (US) examination of elbows is not routinely performed and there have been a few surveys on the correlation between US scores of elbows and disease activity. Objectives To reveal whether there is...

Background Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a rare disease that mostly affects young females and causes inflammation, stenosis and dilatation of the aorta and its main branches. Although glucocorticoids are effective, relapses occur frequently [1]. Recently, the efficacy of biologics has been reported in refractory TAK. HLA-B*52 is a major genetic risk factor and associated with the severity [2]. Our group reported a SNP in the regions of IL12B gene associated with the onset of TAK, and the patients ...
